Hey Alex,
If you ever want a buddy for a show, find me through Brian. We've already got Son Volt and Drive By Truckers on our list for the coming weeks.
Also, don't forget Rock N Roll Hotel -- I don't know if you had any of those shows on the list. -jen

Thanks Jen, will do. And I'll add the RnR Hotel shows soon....I appreciate the heads up.

Alex said...
